WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (UCPLA) President and Chief Executive Officer, Lori Anderson said, "It's with great sadness that I announce the passing of our friends, mentors and Board Members, Peter Devereaux and Bryan Stockton. We are grateful for the many years of their outstanding leadership, friendship, guidance and wisdom. Peter and Bryan will be greatly missed by the entire UCPLA family and our larger community. We extend our deepest condolences to their respective families and many friends."

Devereaux and his wife, Sandra, first connected with UCPLA in 1998 when they were looking for support for their son, Jason, who had cerebral palsy. While Jason never lived at one of the UCPLA homes, the Devereaux family was inspired to bring their friends into the fold to raise funds for the people who rely on UCPLA's supports and resources every day. Devereaux's passion was driven by Jason, along with his twin brother Matthew and their younger brother Michael. His commitment was embraced by Matthew and Michael, who have also volunteered many hours with UCPLA. Devereaux enjoyed spending time with Sandra and his sons. He was enormously proud of the men that they have become. Devereaux leaves a legacy of 22 years of warmth, compassion and integrity that will continue to guide UCPLA's leadership, board members and families.

In a legal career spanning nearly 40 years, Devereaux was a partner in the Los Angeles office of Latham & Watkins. During his tenure he served as Chair of the Firm's Securities Litigation and Professional Liability Practice for many years before retiring at the end of 2012. Devereaux's vast legal experience made him an invaluable member of the UCPLA organization. He was instrumental in UCPLA receiving a $400,000 Cy Pres Award from the 2009 class action suit against the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company. Over the years, Devereaux volunteered tireless hours in leadership roles on multiple boards within the UCPLA family of organizations, including the Board of Governors, Board of Directors, HUD and SCEF Boards and chaired many committees on the organization's governing board.

Devereaux and Stockton enjoyed a long and close friendship, sharing an affinity for their families, their friends and a passion for classic automobiles. Devereaux recruited Stockton to join the UCPLA Board in 2015. Serving as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, Stockton generously shared his extensive business and marketing experience with UCPLA. Stockton's professional career spanned more than 35 years in senior leadership roles as a global consumer products executive creating brand and shareholder value. Stockton was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mattel, Inc., the worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of toys. Prior to Mattel, Stockton held numerous senior leadership roles with Kraft Foods. His professional experience made him an invaluable leader of several Board committees with UCPLA. He was the Chair of the committee leading the organizational rebrand scheduled for public launch in early 2021 and was also involved with the business planning for a new service line for UCPLA. Stockton and his wife, Maureen, were generous and committed supporters of UCPLA. Stockton was also a passionate musician and photographer. He enjoyed time with Maureen, his daughters, Meredith and Lauren and two grandchildren, along with their sons, Garrett and Chase.

Stockton served as an active Board member and advisor for a number of organizations, including the Board of Advisors of privately-held Sierra Nevada Brewing Company; UCLA Anderson School Board of Advisors as a member of the Executive Committee and Chair of the Strategic Planning and Initiatives Committee; and as a member of the Getty Museum Conservation Council. He held a variety of senior leadership roles on the Toy Industry Association, including two years as Chairman, and was a member of the Board of Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA from 2001 to April 2010. Stockton is a past member of the Board of Directors of the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games hosted in Los Angeles.
